"Steven Galloway has pulled off an impressive feat. With Houdini as his backdrop, Galloway has blended fact and fiction in a mind-processor pioneered by Poe. The result is astounding.

Join three acclaimed authors whose works bring history into the present tense.

 

Us Conductors, by Sean Michaels , The New Face of Fiction for 2014, is inspired by the true life and loves of the Russian scientist, inventor and spy Lev Termen--creator of the theremin. It takes us from the glitz and glam of New York in the 1930s to the gulags and scientific camps of the Soviet Union. 

 

Empress of the Night is Eva Stachniak ’s follow-up to her #1 bestseller The Winter Palace. In it, Catherine the Great muses on her life, her relentless battle between love and power, the country she brought into the glorious new century, and the bodies left in her wake. 

 

From Steven Galloway, the award-winning and bestselling author of The Cellist of Sarajevo, comes The Confabulist, a suspense-filled tale that uses the life and sudden death of Harry Houdini to weave a magical tale about fame and ambition, reality and illusion, and the ways that love, grief and imagination can alter what we perceive and believe.
